THE NEW ARK NEWS
HOW THE QUEEN MAY ABDICATE WITH HONOUR
Elizabeth my Queen,
Early in 1970, when I was a young man, active in Christian service, the Lord bestowed upon me a particular calling, to revise the Book of Common Prayer. Humbly and in faith I quietly committed myself to this task in obedience to God, forsaking the natural and healthy issue which any young person would desire, in the pursuit of happiness.
Such a calling could not have been conceived without the power of the Holy Spirit, and it is in his strength and inspiration that I continue to act in faith and humility, addressing this first issue to your Majesty, and before the face of all people. These findings go far beyond their original parameters and month by month I will detail in their completeness.
' Ma'am,' as the Supreme Head of the Church of England, to which it owes so much in identity to the Book of Common Prayer, it is my joy and duty to help safeguard that tradition, and, to see Thee, happily retire, with honour, from your long reign of devotion to service before God and nations, and as Thy most obedient servant help '' Prepare for Continuity,'' of thy Succession.
Your Majesty, I am, your most obedient servant,
Thomas Faithful Darwood Esq.
WHY IT IS TIME FOR THE HEIR TO SUCCEED
Your Royal Highness,
Last June 1999, I became a member of the Prayer Book Society. And having attended their Annual Conference, and in access of their various publications, became mindful of the dedication of the Society towards keeping the Book of Common Prayer practised and accessible to the communicants of the Church of England.
The contributors to their splendid quarterly magazine are learned and enlightened in their articles drawing upon the rich heritage of the Prayer Book. Such a legacy as this, now enjoys your Royal patronage, and as a member of the Society, marks your support with joy and gladness for the sake of those whom have laboured faithfully over a long period of time against manifold oppositions.
I, am a figure of solitary fashion, but with the conviction of a personal calling to which I must remain true, and in this endeavour maintain the common good and contribute humbly towards a passage which will enable the human soul to link up with the Divine through the precious medium of language, which I believe can now be discharged from a new perspective, which will neither forsake past traditions or mimic them.
Such a new vision will I trust also serve a society and Church filled with energy and humanity. The Prayer Book secured that link from the human to the Divine, and the Dual Liturgy I believe can achieve the same success as its great predecessor, to which Sir I trust, will serve and herald your long awaited succession to the Throne.
Your Royal Highness, I am, your most obedient servant,
Thomas Faithful Darwood Esq.
HOW A HAPPY ISSUE MAY DELIGHT US ALL
By tradition one must accept with dignity, till Thou hast gone the way of all the earth, before any new monarch may so become. Yet I believe this may not be so, that for so happy an issue, that I ( and dare I say many more) would equally believe that it is both possible and right for the Heir to become monarch beholden of thine eyes and delight. What is lacking at present is a cogent agenda by which such a happy occasion may be safely brought to pass.
Soon, the nation will mark your 100th birthday will much joy and celebration, and many hearts shall not give way to natures changing course untrimmed, such is the affection on thee beholden. Yet Ma'am, dare I detect some present sadness which bestrides the Royal Family, of which so many in the land have first hand experience of. May God grant me grace and strength, that through this website I may labour and be instrumental in presenting that cogent agenda which will enable such a happy issue prevail against all our afflictions.
Your Majesty, I am your most obedient servant,
Thomas Faithful Darwood Esq.
HOW THE ARCHBISHOP MAY BECOME THE NEXT POPE
Such a title would strike with fear and bemusement with or without a cogent and convincing substantiation of such a bold claim. Yet I believe when this series of articles are complete, it will be possible to vouchsafe such an ideal.
Not so long ago, you asked for from the Liturgical Commission, to bind the Liturgy with brevity, poetry and theatrical passion. Thirty years ago, the Holy Spirit came upon me and led me into a long and painful period of solitude to undertake this very task of revising the incomparable Book of Common Prayer. But I am humble and obedient before God, and acting upon faith, as I do now, against Divine revealing, has led to a passage which has broadened and deepened to such a degree, that in these past thirty years, I have laboured both as a carpenter and joiner during the day, and at night constructed an Tuition Course and The Millennium Passion, in order to expiate these findings, which I believe will satisfy the above ideal.
Your Grace, when these series of articles are understood it will be possible for
you to undertake three objectives:
1. To advise Her Majesty that to '' Prepare for Continuity '' is both right and honourable.
2. To superintend the unity of the whole Church, without any Denomination losing identity.
3. To apply for the Papacy of Rome without compromising the Protestant faith.
Your Grace, I am yours in Christ's freedom and service,
Thomas Faithful Darwood Esq.
HOW THE NEXT POPE MAY REMAIN CATHOLIC
Humanity and Christendom has much to be thankful for as regards safe custody of the Christian Gospel once held at thy behest. Firm was the hand that borrowed from God's grace, and strong the will to impart its creed. Yet over a billion souls who fain would serve and follow Thee, are still without the basic effects of the humblest home in Western Christendom.
Your Grace, when I was five years old, I hungered for the forlorn plight of the poor and wanted to help them. Beyond by grasp and reach they lie from my desire to help and protect them, this to my loathing. But no longer, for fain I would rise to serve and follow that Great Shepherd of the Fold, whose hand will unfold in these series of articles to display his divine intervention to reinstate all the chief criteria of the Eden of Genesis and found our modern Western Civilisation, in one cogent, complete and comprehensible course of action which is expiated in the Tuition Course and The Millennium Passion Play which I have crafted, and will present in these articles.
From them, shall come forth that grasp and reach which shall so serve to those whom hunger and thirst after righteousness, whereby all other comforts of this world will be given, good measure pressed down and shaken verily. To put it plainly, it is Western Civilisation that has fed the mouths of the poor and cultivated her aspirations. But this greatest of all civilisations came into being by breaking from the yoke of Rome at the Reformation and together with the great minds of the Enlightenment forged this new civilisation of which we now all enjoy. This new creation with it brought the Protestant faith. The Almighty, having conducted this course of action has withdrawn his hand, and commends us to regenerate that course of action. This in effect means we are now all catholic, but not necessarily Catholics. Those whom only stood and watched, can now also serve.
Your Grace, I am with you in Christ's freedom and service,
Thomas Faithful Darwood Esq.
MANKIND MUST COME OF AGE AND BUILD A CIVILISATION FOR THE POOR
Dear Prime Minister,
I write to you and Parliament openly and sincerely, to present a case for the Liturgy of the Church of England to become an indigenous one, which will service and call in participation of all the Denominations, and create the unification of the entire Fold. This in effect will be the spiritual equivalent of taxation by representation, and enable representatives from all the Denominations to become members of the Upper House to which your government is showing such earnest efforts to enable a greater representation of society to be part of. This I believe can be the church's contribution towards a balance of active wisdom in the Second Chamber.
In this series of articles, I hope to outline the criteria’s and benefits which can be afforded by such a measure, and its relevance in reawakening the people of Great Britain, whom I believe have always accepted that there is a living God, but have lost that precious mode of transportation in the beautiful language of the Book of Common Prayer, which enabled the people to articulate their belief. I believe a '' Dual Liturgy '' will regain that vital umbilical cord between the human spirit and the Divine Lord. Furthermore, the presentation of this new prayer book, will also enable Her Majesty to happily retire from her long and fruitful service, (though like her mum, she will never really retire, bless them,) enable the Queen Mother to see her favoured Grandson, His Royal Highness succeed to the Throne. A Coronation and a new baby in your first incumbency!
But Sir, there is much more here than this even. My calling from God, thirty years ago to revise the Book of Common Prayer, in its findings, has led to a far more profound revelation, that the Almighty in the era of the Prayer Book has reinstated all the chief criteria’s of the Eden of Genesis expiated in the founding of Western Civilisation and of our modern Democracy and freedoms. Your child Sir, will be given all the love and care just and requisite for the healthy upbringing of its well-being, and we are all glad for you and your family. There are billions in the world to our shame, who cannot enjoy such a certainty of life expectancy. These findings Sir, will enable us all to understand that it is possible to build an entire Civilisation in those countries which are constantly beset by all manner of impropriety.
My proposal is simple. I beseech of you to set up a Global Institution for Humanity, with an initial fund of a billion pounds, calling upon all the wealthy and developed nations to do the same, create a task force represented by government, industry, science, education, charities, indeed all the institutions which service a free Democracy, to literally purchase any undeveloped nation on a thirty year lease, construct an entire civilisation, as we would recognise with all its infrastructure etc, and after a further period of five years make ready for the handover. This will enable all the investment needed to be regained, and an environment which can be part of the developed world for all time.
Sir, we all need a vision which can secure beyond our lifetime and the comforts of self interests. How else can humanity achieve immortality. This task Sir, I wish to apply for consideration.
Thomas Faithful Darwood Esq.
